This FindLaw writeup cites the Veterans Administration as saying:
The Veterans Affairs Department estimates that on any given night last year, 154,000 veterans were homeless, about a 20 percent decrease from 195,827 in the agency’s 2006 estimate.
Although I am happy the numbers have decreased..the fact remains that even one homeless veteran is too fucking many. As the article notes, using the VA’s own numbers:
Today, it is estimated that about one in five people who are homeless are veterans.
